Measures taken on this Website
Galway City Council is committed to providing its online services to all its customers in a format that is as accessible as possible.
Speech-enable our content
BrowseAloud is a solution to speech enable website content. The software is free for you to download as Galway City Council pay an annual charge to speech enable our web site.
All pages on this site use structured semantic markup. <h1> tags are used for main titles, with <h2> and <h3> tags used for subtitles.
Links to external sites have TITLE attributes, which describe the link and its destination in greater detail, and links are written to make sense out of context.
All content images used in this site include descriptive ALT attributes. Purely decorative graphics include null ALT attributes.
This site uses cascading style sheets (CSS) for visual layout. This means you may customise your Internet browser settings to view the site according to your own preferences.
Relative font sizes have been used, compatible with the user-specified "text size" options in visual browsers. If your browser does not support style sheets the content of each page will still be readable.
We have endeavoured to construct this site according to the National Disability Authority of Ireland's Guidelines for Web Accessibility, complying with Priority 1 and Priority 2 requirements.
We will contine to develop and test the site and hope to meet Priority 3 requirements in the near future.
